Hoping for a Josh Hamilton or Zack Greinke signing this offseason?
The days of the Mets signing marquee free agents are officially behind us, at least for the next few years.
GM Sandy Alderson is committed to operating the Mets with low-cost, homegrown talent, which is far from what the team's mantra was just a handful of years ago when it signed big names like Carlos Delgado and Carlos Beltran.
With the exception of a handful of veterans, the Mets are incredibly young and unproven. If they hope to win anytime soon, they better hope that these five players improve.
